Why is Ionic2 still using webview?


#1

Hi I am a big fan of Ionic and I was wondering why is Ionic2 still using webview?

Ionic is built using Angular and HTML components which is most easily presented in a webview. Even if Ionic 2 is rewritten to use Angular 2, the core architecture still requires a webview to be present to load the web page in. After what I get, the whole point of Ionic is to make native-like apps with the web, and this might be difficult without a webview. I might misunderstand your question though. What would be the alternative to a webview in this case (other than abstracting away the native components to javascript like React Native)?
